    Recently one of my sites got injected with spam links. I tried my best to sort out the problem but I have no knowledge of PHP or databases.

    I created a thread here asking for help from the fellow members. And guess what, quite a few people came forward to help me. No one asked me to shell out money. No one trolled me. No one reminded me the obvious - if its a WP site you've got to secure it.

    And with the help of my fellow members (@Asif WILSON Khan in particular), I was able to recover my site.

    My heartfelt thanks to @Asif WILSON Khan, @Panther28, @cyber.surfer, @onlineonly, @ficfroc, @coccodimamma, @cornovox, @validseo and @kevin shah for their time, help and support.

    Thanks to @Kyle6 and others who must have wanted to help but were as clueless as I was.

    This is really a great community and guys, I cherish your company.:)

    PS: I'm sorry if I missed someone out.

    That's great you sort it out. Where did you find the malware?

    The links were present in Pretty Link Pro's table, but they were not visible through PHP MyAdmin. It was when I exported my links to csv, I found them many cells right to my last record and spanning to few more rows. I don't know how they were placed and accessed, because when I browsed the table in PHP, I found nothing.

    I couldn't find out from where they were called in scripts, so I deleted my WP (except my posts and images) and re-uploaded it through my PC. And then I installed a security plugin first.

    Experts who are willing to help! This is really the best place to ask for help when you're in deep sh*t. Although many have tried to ruin the "sharing is/and caring" atmosphere by demanding hand-outs or to be spoon-fed, yet the atmosphere here is still intact. And thank god for it!
